Stay out of the water in Smallville
22 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

This episode wasn't bad, but it is literally the second episode in a row where someone fell into a kryptonite infested lake and then transformed into the bad guy of the week.

I found the plot line with the blind woman to be the best part of the episode, and it's what saved it for me. The villain's reasoning didn't make a lot of sense.

The kryptonite plot is starting to get repetitive. Six episodes so far all have the exact same plot line: "Townsfolk is surrounded by kryptonite and it mutates them into the villain of the week, only to be stopped by Clark."
